Togo

Uhmmmm...i should be doing some reading....but i think i will juggle between here and there...and see what i manage to do....
This great card comes from who else but Glenn of course...ive been mentioning Glenn so often at this blog, i hope he doesnt often get hiccups coz of that ;) Actually, now that i mentioned it, im not sure that this is a worldwide accepted belief..but here in Macedonia for example, if you start having hiccups all of a sudden, we say that someone is talking about you...whether good or bad, its not known :)
Anyway, as for Togo, its of course a new country in my collection...and it falls under the category of countries of which i know little or nothing...
I actually like it a lot how the girl is dressed....i like the colours of her sweater/vest....im not sure how youd call this...and i LOVE all the bracelets around her wrists...in case you didnt know, i love certain pieces of jewelery, esp. rings, earrings and bracelets...and i prefer some odd/interesting ones...im not into silver/gold/classy stuff......and i may not be that much of a fan of necklaces, but all those stuff around this girl's neck seem übercool :)
Oh yeah...this was about Togo...when you look at it on the map. it has an odd straight shape..and seems to be very small. It is located in West Africa and has Ghana on the west, Benin on the east, Burkina Faso on the north.....and some Guinea Gulf water on the south :)
Its capital is Lome....of which im hearing for the first time just now.
When i think about it, i think that out of all the continents, my knowledge about Africa and its countries and capitals is by far the worst. And unfortunately, one of the inevitable relations when i think of Africa, are Bono Vox and Bob Geldof and their 'so much talked about missions about fighting the poverty in Africa and that World Aid or how ever it was called, and that Do they know its Christmas time tune, which i end up hearing EVERY SINGLE Christmas/New Year on the radio for like 10 times a day....and just for the record...U2 have great songs...but i dont like Bono...mainly coz of his 'oh i so much fight about hunger/poverty in Africa' bragging...i havent really seen some effect out of it... i dont know...the way he does it is just annoying to me...if he really wants to help, he could donate bunch of his money, instead of organizing such world-wide commercialized events....
